Sleep Paralysis as a Spiritual Experience

Research shows us that individuals who experience Sleep Paralysis often report sensations of floating or flying outside of their physical body, non-physically.  This ethereal or spiritual body can do far more than the physical body, and those who experience it can travel to different places instantaneously, regardless of gravity constraints, mental limitations, or conscious thought.  These out-of-body experiences (OBE’s) are known as Astral Projection.

Lucid Dreaming – the ability to know that you are having a dream-like experience whilst it is taking place – can also accompany Sleep Paralysis.  Dream loops can also occur.  This is when you experience waking up, only to find that you are still asleep. A surreal experience, where you remain in a dream like environment.

Some people who experience Sleep Paralysis have a paranormal ability to communicate with spirits. For some, there is also the belief that they are God’s (the Creator’s, the Universe’s, Source’s or however you term it) special agent, endowed with spiritual gifts to help humankind.

The recalling of entering a spiritual realm or alternative dimension is also common in Sleep Paralysis, with the individual being spiritually endowed after the experience with gifts like, clairaudience, claircognizance, clairvoyance etc.

Currently, the relationship between Sleep Paralysis and extra-terrestrial activity is being researched, due to the similarity of experiences between UFO abductees and those who experience Sleep Paralysis.

Whilst some individuals refer to Sleep Paralysis as a gift from God (the Creator, the Universe, Source etc.), some believe it to be a punishment. The Creator is punishing them because of what they did in past or present lives. Different cultures represent Sleep Paralysis differently.

Some people can have precognitive dreams of good or/and bad events or deaths that they have dreamt about. The condition and the constancy of the thoughts of the Sleep Paralysis experience can hinder the individual from living a normal life. The trauma can also have physical and mental health implications.

One thing is for sure.
Sleep paralysis does not happen to everyone. Only those with heightened spiritual acuity will experience sleep paralysis.

Tay Client Testimonial


‘Sheila has that special gift of calming your soul. I was feeling overwhelmed then with my life. I feel that every effort I make doesn't make sense and there is a pressure that I can't define in my life. After our sessions, I was able to sort things out. The conversations we had, lead me to where the pressure is coming from. I am grateful that I reached out to Sheila during my "confused" times. I wish Sheila more success on this. May you touch more souls as you progress!”

Joy Client Testimonial


‘I was expecting the sessions with Sheila where she would advise and give me directions to take to make my life happy and more secure. She instead taught me how to choose my own directions and grow as a person for unlimited happiness and abundance. I discovered that I could be far more than I originally thought I could be. I have gained a lot more than I expected from spiritual life coaching with Sheila. This is just the start of the new me. Thank you, Sheila.”

Kumar Client Testimonial


‘Sheila has great experience of helping people reconnect with themselves to find their true purpose, she has a patient and highly intuitive way of uncovering the blocks that are frustrating growth and development, releasing you to move towards your goals. Let her give you clarity and focus, so you can have a better life.”

Adrian Client Testimonal Review


‘I would need a great deal more space to describe all the positive, life-changing things that Sheila has introduced me to. I am amazed at her thoughts on relationships, freedom, forgiveness, planning. There were numerous other things that she helped me bring to the fore. The discovery of thoughts and opinions I was carrying was so enlightening. Sheila has an easy, patient and highly intuitive manner. Giving guidance without leading, easily helping me to understand myself deeply. To be allowed to discuss things so openly with someone I felt I could trust was a revelation in itself. The strong trust created in our sessions was key to enabling me to think, to grow and to make my decisions. I now look forward to dealing with situations. Sheila is a fantastic coach… highly recommended.”

Patrick client testimonial review


‘Sheila Pryce Brooks is the real deal in Spiritual Coaching. She has the kindest, most authentic personality and uses her unique and extraordinary talents to help lovingly guide you through your self-imposed limitations. She was so very helpful to me with a situation that was keeping me 'stuck' and allowed me to see that this was just temporary, while guiding me to release the block, freeing me to move forward toward my vision. Without Sheila, I would have still be wandering around a little longer in that place!! I am grateful for all of your help!”
